AOL’s Long running messaging service will end on December 15th. Though it’s true that i rarely use it these days and that I actually lost my original account years ago… I have fond memories of this communications protocol. I continue to communicate with people though AIM. Apple had strong links to it at the launch of iChatAV. #nostalgia Well, AOL broke the news with a tweet. ironic?
In truth, I haven’t touched it in years. I haven’t even touched cydia recently. Sadly, all this work would only be useful for someone with an original or 3g iPhone. Apple certainly doesn’t support those devices anymore. Does anyone still use them? Unfortunately, my ISP insists that I remove the content. After 7 years of hosting it, they realized it violates TOS. I should check the logs. I wonder if it will even be missed. People say the internet never forgets. Sometimes it is quite the opposite. For nostalgias sake, I left the instructions site up: http://cydia.be3n.com/ (at least that does’t violate Dreamhost TOS). For the record, much of my work continued support well into iOS 4.
. . . Maybe it will rise again on S3?
I found more pictures of my old bedroom recently. Below, I cleared out my bed to install a pull out sofa (seen in next frame). It turned my high school room into quite the hangout. Also on display were some art and other decorations from that era. If you look closely, you can find Pez, impressionists paintings, comics, Magic packs, and a Sun optical mouse/mousepad. I wonder what others will find. My room’s walls were quite the collage. I’ve added more pictures including this 4up from my Nickelodeon Photo Blaster. Can you find Audio/Video tapes next to the original Nintendo? enjoy.
